Gary Nicklaus is an American professional golfer who was born on January 15, 1969, in West Palm Beach, Florida, United States.
He spent three years as a member of the PGA Tour from 2000 to 2003, and has played on numerous tours, including most recently the PGA Tour Champions. He is best known as the son of golfer Jack Nicklaus.
Over the next eight years, Nicklaus would make numerous failed attempts to qualify for the PGA Tour.
He played in 26 PGA Tour events during that time, including the 1997 U.S. Open, but made only two cuts. Nicklaus spent most of his time playing overseas, including the European Tour in 1998, and on mini-tours.
Finally, in 1999, Nicklaus made it through the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament on his eighth try. A few weeks later, Nicklaus teamed with his father to win the Father/Son Challenge, a 36-hole tournament played in a scramble format.
In 2001, Nicklaus made just 12 cuts in 34 starts, with the best finish of 15th at the Memorial Tournament, an event founded by his father. He also qualified for the U.S. Open, his second appearance in a major tournament, but missed the cut.
He placed 184th on the Tour money list and lost his playing privileges.
Forced to return to the qualifying tournament, Nicklaus again earned his card for 2002. But that season saw him make just six cuts in 26 events, and it would be his final season on the PGA Tour.
After spending 2003 primarily on the Tour’s minor-league circuit (now the Korn Ferry Tour), Nicklaus stopped playing professional golf to focus on the family business.
